Knights of Columbus

Knights of Columbus

The Knights were established in March of 1882 by Fr. Michael McGivney in New Haven, CT. It was formed by him and members of the parish to render financial support and aid to members and their families, especially widows and orphans. The Fr. Edwin Kelley Council #5750 is a Family, Fraternal and Service Organization for Catholic men. They are involved in a number of religious, charitable and social events and activities. On the 2nd Sunday of the month, they host a pancake breakfast in the parish hall of Our Lady of Angels, after the 8:00 am and 9:30 am Masses.

About Knights of Columbus

Thanks to the efforts of Father Michael J. McGivney, assistant pastor of St. Mary’s Church in New Haven and some of his parishioners, the Connecticut state legislature on March 29, 1882, officially chartered the Knights of Columbus as a fraternal benefit society. The Order is still true to its founding principles of charity, unity and fraternity.
